So far it seems to be working. Sleeping has improved which is good. Have also seen slight improvement in strength.
Great and effective product as long as you use it as it says on the bottle.

Gives you a nice deep dreamy sleep and aids morning glory.. strange though that it used to say take 3 capsules and now says take 1?

I love these tablets, i received them as a free gift during an offer and have been purchasing them ever since. I generally have problems nodding off but with 2 of these im able to relax and get a good night sleep. In the morning i generally feel good, although sometimes i have felt even more lethargic but that could be due to anything. these pills are very easy to swallow. I feel like they have aided in recovery, also studies show this supplement help to keep test levels at a constant natural high in your body. Only issue i have is the morning wood, can be dangerous for loved ones in bed with you, bruised legs and what not.
I started taking this because I was having trouble getting up after a workout and full of aches. I took this product and within a few days, I was waking up refreshed as if I'd had twice the amount of sleep. A great product for recovery and a good nights sleep.
Goods night sleep and quick recovery since taking this product
Excellent, amazing nights sleep after taking. Feeling refreshed and improves recovery.

Recovery is good with this product. Sleeping well and feeling refreshed. For the price this product is excellent as other brands charge so much more. Thanks my protein
Great product, perfect for recovery and sleep. You will have better sleep on these and feel more awake in the mornings. Colleagues and I have had the odd random dream whilst on this product. All in all very good.
The bottle says to take three capsules and in the discription for the dosage it says one Not clear wether I'm taking too much or not which is not good for you over prolonged periods Other than that it seems to work very well I sleep like a baby

Great product when training hard i train monday to friday very early mornings before work i find after hard training at the gym and work was tired started taking it 2-3months ago and now i am great wake up feeling fresh and found to start again plus been having herätä night sleepGoes Well With:Water
Wanted a product that improved my quality of sleep and I was a bit dubious at first, so tried the smaller size (90 capsules) and was impressed with the results. When I use this I find if I only catch 6 hours of sleep, it feels like I've had at least 8. It doesn't make it easier/harder to get off to sleep, but ensures it's a sleep of higher quality. Taste just like any other tablet, and is normal size. Highly recommend it to anyone who wants to make the most of their recovery and don't know how I survived without it before! Goes Well With:A good night's sleep A well balanced diet

You can feel the difference, excellent for sleeping relaxing. Excellent product.
Taken on workout days i find that i get a good nights sleep and feel alot less sore the next day. Just make sure you take 1h before any casein protein as can be blocked by it.
Doesn't make me feel tired or anything like that, how ever have noticed I do sleep deeper as haven't even woken up when my phone rings (which usually wakes me up). I like the capsules as can't taste anything. Would buy again. I take 2 every evening 1 hour before due to sleep.
It helps you get to sleep and allows a decent nights sleep
Very effective, great sleep off these when taken before bed.
At first i wasn't sure if this stuff was genuine until i actually tried it. you feel noticeable changes even on the first day of having it. definitely get it,Goes Well With:water
On my 2nd bottle use these after 5aside & 11aside football with great success Noticeably less aches in the morning No taste as they are in a plastic casing and easy to swallow 3 with a glass of waterGoes Well With:Bcaa
ive been taking this supp for about a year to help me sleep (cheep generic types) myprotein ones were twice as much as the ones i was getting im cycling these with the sleepmax tablets 4 weeks on the sleepmax tablets 2 weeks on this productGoes Well With:dark room
Never felt so great waking up in the morning
I was sceptical about taking what is known as a Mans supplement, but I have to say, I eat my words. As a fit and active lady of mature years I am amazed at how I feel after only taking for a week!!! My sleep is much deeper and wake feeling refreshed and ready for a new day, also my recovery time after a tough spin class is much improved, can train the next day if I so wished. Will definitely be replenishing my order again. Go on give it a go!!!
Fantastic. Easy to swallow for starters. The quality of sleep I have had has been unmatched by any other product I've used. Waking up fresh as a daisy and early too ready for a run with plenty of energy. I've even got me dad and girlfriend in them as I'm so impressed. The only quarm is they don't mix well with dairy, so a Protien shake before bed is not advisable (unless you can stomach a rice, pea or soy shake...) Money well spent tho. Cheers!
Great product was recommended by a friend to take this to aid sleep after an intense workout. This really does put you in a deep sleep which is great for me being a light sleeper. I haven't had any of the freaky dreams people have mentioned but that could be because I'm in too deep of a sleep. Not sure if it aids recovery muscle wise as I already take BCAA's but I may just try taking it to see if it works for a week.Goes Well With:BCAA's
I've been taking this regularly for 9 months. It's taken on training days only. The benefits are subtle and very hard to quantify without using scientific data. My experience is anecdotal. It helps you sleep, gives you amplified dreams. Not sure if it helps you recover BUT my weight has dropped by 24lbs, toning increased, strength increased, and mentally feel much better. I have increased my training intensity and mix. I will continue to use this product as it is part of a routine but I would like to see scientific data to show it's 'true' performance.
This is a must have for me. After a couple of nights taking them they were very effective on helpin with sleep and waking up.Goes Well With:Gym? Sleep? Creatine mono?
It's hard to say definitively say 'Yes this helps' as it is subtle. It definitely helps you sleep and have crazy wonderful dreams. The rest, well I have lost a lot of weight and toned -up nicely over the past 3 months. I use this on training days only.
Best tasting creatine supplement I've ever had!!! If there was a bigger packet I would buy it. Goes Well With:Anything as it's just sweet.
New product to me and to be honest can't say I have really noticed that it has had an effect on my overall well being. But the way I look at it is that it is not going to do me any harm.Goes Well With:Water and any multi vitamin
Love em, sleep better, train better, energised... HappyGoes Well With:The stomach
I have just started taking this product and I don't think that I have ever slept so well.
Weight training at the moment, was recommended to try this product to help with recovery... Recovery was amazing, felt amazing when I woke up, it helped to have deeper sleep so next day I could go work and hit the gym after without feeling sore. Defo a must esp for weight training. Taste wise, it's a capsule - taste isn't so important nor does it even matter - results is what matters. Great product!!!Goes Well With:My protein whey isolate and cla
This works for me every time I use it! Helps with sleep.
This is a good simple product in a large size. Take before bed to improve sleep and wellbeing.Goes Well With:Tribulus.
I bought this product after reading reviews and my quest for deeper sleep. Futhermore the quality was at a good prizing. I initially used the recommended dose of 3 before bedtime, but have experienced that it takes 5 capsules for me to have an effect. I've tried more efficient ZMAs earlier, and the good price is not worth much if I almost have to double the dose.Goes Well With:slightly better effect with casein before bed also.
Brilliant product. I have been having it now for 3 months. Great results. Good night's sleep. Fast Muscle recovery.
Excellent product. Perfect before bed as gives you a good nights sleep and do not feel any aches or pains from the previous workout the evening before.
I used this product after it being recommend by a friend -at rugby - to stop the aches the day after a match. It really does work.
The tablets are very effective, combined with proper diet and exercise - have noticed overall aesthetic improvements. Also, definitely been able to get much deeper sleeps since taking this product. Good value for money!
Does the job and is easy to swallow. No dodgy dreams as of yet.Goes Well With:Bedtime Extreme
I've used this one for about two weeks now, I found if I used it after a heavy session of sparring before bed it was very effective at helping me recover and feel more energised. Goes Well With:Water and at least 8 hours sleep but 9 to 10 would be better.
Just started using this product but noticed instant results, highly recommend!
I've used other brands before, this one works just as well at a much better price.
Great product at a great price.Goes Well With:Regular training
I've been taking these capsules for a week now and I can seriously tell the difference in my sleep.Goes Well With:Water
I am never really sure if this works regardless of price or make, however I seem to sleep through my alarm every morning while taking the product. So I assume I am getting a deeper sleep. Now set 2 alarms and all is fine.
I bought this product as it was cheaper than precision engineered brand, and I have been/will be taking it for life as its such an important supplement for gettin me out of bed on the mornings and fixing my zinc deficiency. Despite having the exact same ingredients and doses as the precision engineered brand, myprotein zma did not make me feel fresh when I woke up at all, it also had the exact same effect on my girlfriend who takes It constantly, and we tried this for 2 weeks to no avail. As soon as we switched back to the precision engineered brand, we were straight out of bed and fresh as a daisy. I will continue to buy most of my other supplement stack from MP, however will be testing them vs other brands to see if I get similar results to the disappointing zma.
Great product, I noticed a big difference although I think my diet may have been very low in Zinc. This is a little too expensive for what it is though but overall it's good. I've noticed I sleep better, with increased motivation.
Having been taking this supplement for the past few weeks, it is a great supplement for anyone looking to ensure their zinc & magnesium levels are kept strong and it also gives you a great nights sleep... no side effects experienced at all. I will definitely be purchasing this once the first bottle runs out, nice one MyProtein! Goes Well With:Water
I have been using these capsules for a week and seem to get a better nights sleep from them.
I've been using this supplement for around a week now, it seems to work pretty well along with the protein I use. I have seen some difference, I think these tablets support your body well and enable you to put everything into your body gets used better, I would recommend it.Goes Well With:Water
I used this product because I always react badly to multi-vitamins and this boosts some of the essentials. It gives me great quality sleep. I do wake up during the night but I feel I've slept for hours when I've only been in bed for one or two, which is a great feeling. My dreams are more vivid too. I take a couple of days off it each week though as I struggle to wake up if I don't! And I wouldn't use it if I expect to get less than eight hours.Goes Well With:A bed and nine hours to spare.
This supplement helps me sleep and recover really well. I have tried other brands, but Myprotein works best for me. I have lots more energy in the morning, even after a tough session the day before.Goes Well With:Take before bed on empty stomach
I've always struggled with getting a good 7-8 hours sleep per night, I tried all the usual 'pharmacist' aids but still found myself being irritated during sleep. I was recommended this supplement not only for healthy sleeping patterns but recovery as well and must say it's worked on both levels. My sleep is now uninterrupted and I sleep solidly for 7 hours and my recovery is limited to 24 hours DOMS max whereas before I could be recovering for 2-3 days post workout. Anyone looking to use this for instant 'size and strength' gains don't bother, improve your diet before assessing supplements. I bought this to aid sleep and recovery and its worked perfectly fine for me.Goes Well With:A big comfy bed!
I found that my sleep wasn't aided. I had one nights sleep that was better than usual while taking this. Didn't see any gains in size or strength.
This is a great supplement and the tablets are easy to swallow. I could feel the effects straight away, I would be lost without this! Fully recommend it.Goes Well With:A mouthful of water!
Great sleep aid. I always wake up feeling refreshed and like I've had a deep sleep.
Good product. It gave me excellent recovery, good sleep and enhanced immunity whilst training hard. I will definitely buy again.
I sink these tablets whenever I haven't had a shake before bed, as they shouldn't be taken with dairy. When I do take them my dreams are so vivid and I have had one experience where I was in such a deep sleep I tried to wake up when my alarm was going but I couldn't move. It's excellent if you like dreams.
I have been getting up at the break of dawn for my training for a while now and it has to be said it has been an effort to keep it up. I had a back op around three mounts ago and I was really struggling to sleep. So the combination of the two my sleep was minimal, after taking this product I not only sleep better but waking up in the morning I feel refreshed! Great product ! Goes Well With:Advance lean bundle
I've tried many brands and so far this one from myprotein has really make my sleep deep and wake up fresh in the morning.
"I've been using these for a week and a half now and...they can certainly help with sleep but oh good lord - be prepared for some crazy dreams! No word of a lie, since I started taking these I've been experiencing some extremely crazy dreams. Mind, it's a small price to pay for a good nights sleep. I used to get about 6/7 hours a night, now it's anything between 8/10 hours which means it may not be best to take these on a work night (I'm lucky as I work 3-on-3-off). All in all a great aid to help with rest...but those dreams, the DREAMS!!!"
"2 Week study on ZMA. I know it works but I wanted something tangible as proof so I set about doing a controlled test both on and off ZMA using my Zeo Sleep Manager. Over a 2 week period I was able to establish that when not taking the product my deep sleep accounted for between 15-25% with periods of light and REM sleep over an 8 hour period. Running the same test using ZMA, the deep sleep increased to between 25-35% over the same period. I was acutely aware not to change my sleep habits to skew the results and even I was surprised by how much improvement I got from taking the product over this 2 week study. "
Great product from myprotein for all your training goals. It gives me great sleep and i feel great the next day to carry out my daily routine on my training and i train 7 days aweek. I have used zma from other brands and to be honest they were no way as good as this and thats because its got good stuff inside without all the rubbish you don't need. 10 out of 10.
"Not for me, read and heard some good things, so got the 270 capsules but unfortunately when taking my sleep seems worse and find myself waking up during the night and have found it very difficult to get out of bed in the morning after taking these as I'm still tired. Personally wouldn't recommend, however like I say I've heard it works great for some people so if you want to try it go for it but I would recommend you try before investing your money in a big pot. As for my protein great as ever."
"Tried these at the stated dose of 3 caps an hour before bed, 1st 2 mornings i woke up with stomach pains & spent the next hour on the toilet. Reduced to 2 tabs and didnt have this problem. Must be the magnesium that im sensitive to. Cant say it improved my sleep at all as it actually felt harder to drop off to sleep & i didnt really feel refreshed in the morning. Stopped taking after a week as i was taking other products with high amounts of zinc in but will give a whirl again sometime soon."
"Really not sure why MP use Magnesium citrate when compared to say asparate it is ridiculously less absorbed. This is something MP should look into as there are many studies out there that prove that citrate form of magnesium is clearly inferior and the body can hardly uptake it. Having said that can still feel some effects deeper sleep etc but if they didnt use citrate recovery would be much better, sleep would be nicer."
"I don't know about the sleeping patterns...for some reason this things put me in a really deep sleep but make me wake up every hour on the hour at 7, 8 and 9 in the morning if i dont get up before then! When this happens though, I'm able to fall back asleep within a matter of seconds so its not really an issue, its actually a benefit if you have to wake up to an alarm every day because it doesnt come as a shock. As far as results go, these things definitely reduce recovery time and I'm convinced theyve allowed me to keep more muscle mass. One thing i don't understand is how you are supposed to have them on an empty stomache if you take a shake before bed. Either way its a fantastic product and the ratio of Mg to Zn is spot on."
"I found it very useful as it really improved my sleep, and I wake up very easily in the morning now. No weird dreams to report yet (or maybe i'm too terrified to remember lol) Really happy with the product!"
"patented so all is the same so order here to save money. ive taken this for about 6 months and ive had nothing but a good experience with it i diddnt notice any ill effect by taking it with my last meal even if that was 600g of cottage cheese, the effects i have seen are the ability to train harder and heavier a deep peaceful sleep, a sence of personal well being increased sex drive (mind you i am 21 lol) and am able to hit personal bests every week the only bad thing is its realy hard to wake up after 10 hours as it tends to knock me unconcious its realy the only supplement i bother with (me personaly) and a good old protein shake in conclousion train hard take a good protein shake like impact whey and this and the rest will follow"
"The stuff dreams are made of! Literally!! I dream all the time but this is just amazing. It's like dreaming through a stadium size pa rig. The main effect I have noticed is that at my age (40) my recovery time has shortened and I can work much harder and for longer. I took them for one month whilst doing my normal 5 day per week gym routine of weight management and strengthening, and the second month of renovating a property. The renovations where harder than my normal gym routine. I flew through both. Each morning I would wake-up refreshed and ready to go. I also have had reconstructive surgery to my back so can be very stiff in the mornings but this product has reduced that. The only downside is that I am encouraged to work harder and harder, which is something I do to my own detriment. I have had to take ten days off to let my body catch-up with the sheer amount of work I have put it through in the past couple of months. I am now getting back to my normal gym routine and have started taking them again. They work for me."
"nice easy product to take, great to take, no horrid taste and effect of the caps was great. Also I found I had a nice deep sleep when taking this product but still woke up fine in the morning ready to start a new day of training."
"Be aware it can cause hair loss. Extra zinc can do this plus the elevated test levels produce extra DHT which attaches to hair follicles and can cause them to stop working. Bald or big, your choice!"
"Tried this for 2 months. All I can say is it seemed to have a slight effect on sleep in a positive way. But what I can say on the negative side is the instructions make it a bit difficult to take properly. To the letter, you must have it on an empty stomach, which means you have to wait a while after your evening meal, and it also means you can NOT have your bedtime slow release protein shake either. I think whatever gains there are to be had with this suppliment are undone by the mucking about with the other important meal timings. I've tried just taking these along with meals and other supplements but don't get any of the sleep benefits at all."
"I found these really worked, definitely help to increase your gains - but as ever there's no substitute for training hard... One thing I would say is that these definitely induce a deeper sleep, if you (like me) have to wake up quite early in the mornings with an alarm, you will most likely feel rather drowsy... Waking up normally on the weekends I feel really well rested though. Recommended"
Unfortunately all this product has contributed to is severe back acne. I bought this product off the back of reviews that said it helps induce sleep and gives you a good rest. But what I found is it get me awake half the night (taking 3 pills at 10:00 and not getting to sleep until 1:00)
"Best supplement out there for recovery imo; had some wacky dreams from it but also help to reduce DOMS the day after an intense session (i am a sprinter), has helped with strength gains and also as a testerone booster. Great value, great product"
Spot on product! Helps recovery and good test boost! been using this product for a while! The weird dreams are always a cheeky bonus too! A third of the price nearly with the exact same amount of ingredients compared to a competitor's i used to take. Will not buy anywhere else now.
"Definitely works, noticed an up in growth hormone levels for sure - felt more invigorated, probably more aggressive among other effects... The increase in growth hormone was more noticeable with this than with Tribulus for example. And it definitely adds to your gains in this way. HOWEVER, I found I got really drowsy with ZMA, was waking up like a zombie even after 8/9 hours. So I would bear this in mind, definitely wouldn't recommend if you struggle to wake in the mornings, or only sleep for a few hours each night."
"SUREEEEEAL DREAMS MAN!!!!! i get really strange sureal dreams when i take this before bed! which is why i dont take it before bed anymore, but if you dont mind been chased by zombie kittens all night while you sleep then this stuff is great! i would'nt say it helps building lean tissue so much, but the general health benifits from it are fantastic!! i was taking this all winter and didnt get ill once, when all around me people were droping like flies!! Stoped taking it for a fortnight,, guess what? FLU!! Back on it now and after 1 week im feeling back to normal again! it also makes me feel more alert, vitalised and happy!! you could just buy zinc from the supermarket or supplement store for less, but i do think this is far superior and would recommend it to anyone, body building or not. you need this in your life!! "
"In the way of growth and strength gains Its not a magic pill its not going to give you umpteen lbs off lean mass, EVER, anyone thinking so and marking badly because of this is deluded. For me this stuff helps induce better more restful sleep and has me waking up in the morning feeling fresh, not sluggish like i usualy do. I have a more positive outlook and feel happier which is probably just down to the improved sleep. Improved sleep = More energy + Better mood = Better work outs The dreams are nuts aswell, which is a bonus ....just ordering another tub"
"Many people seem to be confusing these with sleeping pills, they often give you a deeper sleep however they won't make you fall asleep especially if you have trouble sleeping in the first place. Like others have said I've experienced many strange dreams but none of them have been bad. The product seems to do exactly what it says it will and that's what you are paying for so no complaints here"
"Been taking them about 9 weeks now Props- great price, did got me stronger and endurance also it did help quick recovery but nothing special. Cons- Gives me weird dreams almost every night , didn't gain muscle mass that much i train my muscles 4 days a week i only put on 2 lbs of muscle past 9 weeks with this is not that much at all. And didn't help me sleep i always wake up very tired. 2 stats nothing special"
"really good growth compound use with tribulus and beta ecdysterone to maintain a high growth state in the body, top stuff, and at that price its amazin thanks MP"
"I usually have alot of trouble sleeping and since i've been using this i have been finding myself drifting off alot easier, which means i'm getting earlier nights and getting more out of my days and my training sessions, also i have to say i completely agree with Robert about the lead haha."
"I have taken these for over a week and have experienced positives and negatives with this product. The positives are that I certainly feel more alert in the mornings especially after a bad nights sleep, it definately puts me in a deep sleep which inturn has improved my recovery. The negatives are that I struggle to get to sleep most nights as they make me feel hot and awake for a good 2-3 hours after taking them. If you buy them i recommend taking them a good hour/hour and a half before sleep."
"Very good product, especially if you want to get stronger. Take an hour before bed and I noticed definite strength gains. To me its as essential as Glutamine or BCAA, want proof look up some of the studies done on amateur US athletes when it first came out back in 1997 the results are amazing."
tried this after reading all the positive feedback i must admit it did nothing for me and did not improve sleep neither however i gave a couple to my mum and she said she had vivid dreams...
"I have trouble sleeping usually, so I popped a few of these pills hoping they would help. First night of use I had an amazing sleep, no weird dreams to report (yet) as some other users have experienced. Hoping for many more great sleeps! Only one thing; Do not sniff inside the pot. Phew! It stinks."
"These Capsules are great, easy to swallow much better than tablets and they are allowing me to sleep and recover better!!"
"I have been trying this for a few days now and I can not sleep a wink, this stuff keeps me wide awake all night"
"Great product. My nights have definetly improved and I feel it has a positive effect on my health and strenght throughout the day. Just a word of caution: If you are sure you'll only have a short night, avoid it. because I feel really drousy (more than usual) when I take this on short nights."
i found this product to be just fantastic ..it really put the lead back in my pencil too
"Better sleep, at least, for sure. Really deep and peaceful sleep :)"
"not been taking any supplements befire now started adding this to my diet and really noticed the difference mentally and physically, in the morning i feel buzzed and not aching from the hard workout the day before, and keeps you awake throughout day, im focused and increasing the weight just withion the first week. its the little things that help and this helps alot."
"this has worked wonders for me over the last 4 weeks, just ordered myself more!.. i would recommend this to anyone great product.. much cheaper than other brands too! ...."
"I have started taking this supplement for two weeks now my and sleep has improved a lot so i really think it depends on the person, for me it does wonders.\nsecondly i would like to congratulate Myprotein for their fantastic products and fairnes on the reviews sections, they are written by customers unlike \nSci-Mix where all the reviews are positive, and very obvious written by themselvs, i used to order from them,not anymore so Myprotein you just gained another happy customer"
"I've tried it quite a few times now and i either struggle to go to sleep or i sleep then wake 4 hours later, i purchased a tub a few months back and every now and again i give it another go, same results none or very little sleep. again like some of the other guys i guess this is just not for me!"
"I took this for the first time on Friday and Saturday night. It seems to have the opposite effect on me. It kept me awake half the night on both nights. And the times that I was sleeping, I had the craziest dreams ever ! I'm sure like all MP products, this is top quality, just not the one for me. Try before you buy I would say."
